The Conflict Pool, which was succeeded by the Conflict Stability and Security Fund from Financial Year 15/16, was funded from a Treasury settlement which was separate from and additional to departmental budgets and was administered jointly by the Ministry of Defence, Department for International Development and Foreign and Commonwealth Office for conflict prevention and mitigation work. At the last spending review in June 2014 , the overall allocation increased from £664 million for 2013/14 to £683 million for 2014/15. Details of Conflict Pool allocations were made in the House of Lords on 24 June 2014 by the former Minister of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Warsi), (WS107).

A Written Ministerial Statement about the Conflict Stability and Security was published on 12 March 2015 by the then Minister for Government Policy in the Cabinet Office, my right hon. Friend the member for West Dorset (Mr Letwin), which was repeated in the House of Lords by Lord Wallace of Saltaire, (HLWS379).
